I suppose the founders of OnlyFans never saw that tittle coming! The site was intended for content creators to monetize their exclusive materials like tutorials, pictures, educational videos, comedy, skit videos, and vblogs among a wide range of content.
No one imagined this beloved creation becoming a porn-haven.
The ‘Paywall of Porn’ That Everyone Is Talking About
With over 20 million registered users as of this writing, the site is popular for porn more than any other genre. OnlyFans allows users to create a paywall around their profiles to charge their fans for access to the exclusive content they publish occasionally on their walls.
Technically, OnlyFans is a social media platform that you pay to follow your favorite people. Besides access to fresh material, the site also allows users to message their idols directly and get personalized responses unlike in traditional porn setups. OnlyFans alongside other popular streaming platforms are changing how we consume porn!
Explicit content creators and their fans are opting for OnlyFans especially now that other social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter have launched a purge on explicit content. The modern viewer prefers personalized live shows as opposed to traditional scripted porn.
No Need For Production Studios
OnlyFans is shaping up to be adult content creators’ and porn enthusiasts’ go-to meeting point. It has allowed creators to cut down middlemen in the distribution chain and sell their content directly to the final consumers translating to more profits.
The site is growing exponentially owing to the ease of setting up an account and navigating your way around. Initially, the platform attracted amateur entertainers, although now professional pornstars are joining the bandwagon thanks to the unlimited earning potential the site offers. Creators can charge their fans a fixed monthly subscription fee or put up a pay-per-click system.
How Is The Navigation?
OnlyFans is one of the most intuitive social media designs you can ever come across. You’ll know exactly where to click once you are logged in, it doesn’t matter if it’s your first time around!
The Signing up process is simple, they only ask for your basic information –name and email address. Newcomers are given suggestions of the people they might want to follow or perhaps subscribe to their offerings. These are popular personalities that have carved a name for themselves on the platform. You may as well search for specific people if you know their username.
The homepage contains feeds from your active subscriptions. You can view the materials on the feeds if you’ve already subscribed to the channel, or rather pay to view.
The notification page shows your interactions, the creators you like, those you’ve subscribed to their channels, the ones you’ve tipped, and any other promotional message.
The third icon on the row allows you to compose a post for your fans, and the last feature is the messages icon.
OnlyFans is a mobile-optimized platform that allows uploads from mobile devices. Its loading speed for both mobile and computer browsing is remarkable, you won’t get stuck trying to find your way back to the homepage.
Upon signing up, you might wanna complete your profile –add a profile picture, your card for subscriptions, and a bank where your earnings shall be deposited (content creators).
What Other Helpful Features Are There?
Besides subscription fees, creators can make money through tips. The system allows viewers to tip their favorite performers to show appreciation for their remarkable performances. Some performers make more money through tips as opposed to subscriptions.
The next feature is the pay-per-view messaging which allows creators to send tailored pay-per-view messages to individual subscribers or the entire fan base. The creator posts the material together with the asking price and interested subscribers will pay to view the content. The message is usually ‘locked’ with only the caption showing.
Upon clicking on the content, one is directed to pay first to get access. OnlyFans is an interactive platform with a global appeal. As such, creators may not always be available to engage all their supporters from different time zones.
However, the site allows them to queue the content and schedule to have them posted at a desired time. This feature allows users to be active even when they are sleeping or carrying out other activities.
Forget the scheduled prerecorded content; the platform is popular for its thrilling live shows. Performers can go live every time they please. The beauty with this feature is that users that were offline during the live stream can catch the show later as long as they pay for it.
OnlyFans creators can use other social media accounts to market their offerings. The platform can be easily integrated with twitter to boost the user’s fanbase.
Is OnlyFans Worth it?
If you are a fan of authentic first-hand acts, then this platform is totally worth it.
Traffic is ceding traditional pornsites to join the live stream uprising, no one should be left behind. OnlyFans allows you to interact directly with your favorite performers and request for tailored acts.
You can have your outlandish sexual fantasies enacted by your favorite models on Onlyfans –who doesn’t like that! It is the best thing to have happened to creators, arguably better than premium subscription sites.
Actors pocket nearly 80 percent of the earnings from their acts –that is after deducting the site’s commission. This percentage is way more than what they normally get from traditional porn shoots. The site is also safe to visit considering creators don’t have access to your personal information like debit/credit card numbers and contact information since the site uses a third-party billing to handle payments.
Experts predict that the general live stream industry will grow to $70.5 billion by 2021 meaning OnlyFans is likely to grow past its current size. The site has already paid out millions of dollars to content creators, perhaps the reason they are experiencing an influx in new sign-ups lately, everyone wants to get a piece of this great invention revolutionizing the adult industry.
The only downside to this platform is that content quality is not regulated, therefore, you might occasionally run into mediocre performances every once in a while!
Overall, we give OnlyFans a score of 9.2/10!
